Setting & Lifestyle

Another notable thing is that Helen is a major vacation destination. Much of the city’s population is seasonal: many people own second homes and only live there part-time, during the vacation season.

As the vacation season ends, Helen’s population drops significantly, such that year-round residents will notice that the city is a much quieter place to live.

Helen is a small city, and as such doesn't have a public transit system that people use to get to and from their jobs every day.
